Advances in Aerospace Technology
With the boom in technological advancements in the 21st Century, the aviation industry is one area that is looking forward to the future and encompassing the new technology. The level of cross-over technology has also grown sustainably between the military and commercial applications. This leads to new technology being deployed far quicker and in a cost-effective manner than ever before. Components that were once for use solely in smaller military systems are now being used on a larger scale for commercial carriers.
Digital Air Traffic Control
Avionics, Satcom and Antenna
Traditionally coaxial connections within aeroplanes would be
running at speeds of around 20-30MHz, but with the technological development of
cables and connectors up to 12GHz, it should be possible that, for example, the
higher data transfer rate required to run the flight controls from cameras to
the cockpit should be achievable by using coaxial connections, as opposed to fiber optic systems previously used.
From a customer level the introduction of Satellite based Wi-Fi services, whilst flying, is another use for coaxial technology and provides additional incentives to choose the airline.
